THE Bulls will be on their guard to stop their landlords kicking them out of their home tomorrow.

John Kear’s side host Dewsbury at the Tetley’s Stadium in the first competitive match-up between the clubs who currently share the Rams' ground.

The Bulls restored confidence with the nail-biting comeback triumph over Halifax but face opponents who have made a 100 per cent start to the Championship.

Kear insists his team must be watchful of the danger posed by the Rams’ kicking game.

He said: “Dewsbury were really good against Widnes and looked after the ball but I was most impressed with their kicking game. I thought it was exceptional and they scored three tries from kicks.

“They kicked for field position really well and that allowed them to dominate the game through their defence. It will be a challenge.

“Lee Greenwood is a good coach and he has two intelligent half backs in Paul Sykes and Liam Finn.

“They’ve got bags of experience and certainly put it to good use. They lead the team around the field very well indeed.”

Kear was delighted with how his own pivots Danny Brough and Jordan Lilley clicked against Fax and felt first impressions were “very promising”.

“It alleviated a lot of the pressure on Danny and I thought Jordan responded marvellously.

“The best example of how they gelled together was the drop goal.

“Everybody followed Danny but he was smart and composed enough to pick out his mate, who had positioned himself very intelligently and he had the time to slot it between the H’s.

“I’ve said it before, but they are the conductors and it’s up to the forwards to be the orchestra and make sure they play the right notes.”

With the Covid restrictions and social-distancing measures, the Bulls will use the adjoining home and away dressing rooms. Dewsbury, as the visiting team, will get changed in the upstairs bar.

Kear added: “It’s quite a strange game where both teams can claim to be at home. They’ll obviously be equally happy with the surroundings.

“The players all brought that energised game against Halifax and the challenge for them is to keep doing it week-on-week. They must be resilient no matter what’s thrown at them.

“It’s good to get into that weekly routine again, which we haven’t had for so long.

“But you might have to be a little bit more mindful in the early part of the week of the recovery aspect because they are still getting battle-hardened.

“You only have to look at the number of injuries across the game to see that’s the case.”
